Me Again!!!

Another two-post day!!! Aha!!

First (and I meant to say this earlier) my motivation seems to have returned this week, and I very much appreciate every one's patience as I complained my way through my lack of enthusiasm last week. I am not sure what has happened in the last two days that seemed to have put me back on track, but it was like I woke up Sunday, and WHAM! Motivation kissed me good morning.

That, in addition to the fact that my diet has returned to normal as well, and I think that alone greatly contributes to my motivation (and hip size).

So Yay for Me!

Second (you knew there was rant in here somewhere, didn't ya?) I am just now making dinner and watching Access Hollywood in the background (ahem, I mean, someone turned it on...must have...I didn't...intentially...) and Katie Holmes-girl was on. Here's my question: Does bitch know any other words besides "amazing" and "wonderful?" Actually, I stand corrected, because she used the word "glorious" to described motherhood or some shit. With a straight-faced she used that word. True story.

Let me tell ya something, Holmes-girl - you are married to the craziest man in Hollywood, second only to Brit-Brit at this point, you get paid three million dollars a year to maintain your fake marriage, you drown your sorrows at Barney's, and you still make bad movies (have you seen her in Thank You for Smoking? No thank you, Ms. Robot). There is nothing "glorious" about your weird ass life (okay, maybe the 3 mil might qualify, but still, her husband believes in a religion of aliens...okay?)

And when you sit in interview with this weird-ass drugged-up smile and proclaim how "amazing" and "wonderful" and "normal" and "amazing" your life is, as if to have someone feeding you lines through an earpiece, no one is really buying it.


Because relationships are WORK, 'ol girl, and yours must be an overtime job. They may have moments of glory, moments of amazing, but when you sit up there and regurgitate BS about how you have never felt a moment of difficulty in your relationship, you are a liar. A rich liar in designer clothes, but a liar nonetheless.

Down here on planet Earth, I have never met anyone that hasn't said, "Yeah, I wondered if we could make it" or "We definitely have our struggles" or even "Sometimes I want to smother the bastard in his sleep." Again, I am sure there are probably more good times than bad times in most relationships that work, but I think we need to be realistic about the fact that even the best relationships aren't problem-free, as Holmes-girl would like us to believe.

That, and I still haven't found out for sure if she paid her way into the Boston Marathon.

(Raises hand.) I'd like to state for the record that I've been married for 9 years and I OFTEN want to smother my husband in his sleep. Work, indeed. And sometimes more trouble than it's worth.

She's just as much a nut job as her fake husband.

Her acting is suspect and I agree she's crazy now.....but there was about a minute or two I REALLY enjoyed of her in "The Gift"....

I read in US Weekly (I was flying yesterday, I read crap when I fly) that she got a "charity" spot in the Boston Marathon - so I imagine she is paying someone for that place!

Erin said...

omg. I read that too, with the same sentiments (only not as well put or as funny as yours are here). So true, so true!!!

GRRRR indeed!!!

My friend EARNED her spot at Boston...AND gives her TIME to community service.

I'm going to pretend that all the attention pointed at Holmes-girl (LOVE that nickname) is supposed to motivate us to celebrate _actual_ efforts to contribute to society and self-improvement.

Here's my question: if Miss Katie's so "up" on marathons all of a sudden, why doesn't she TRAIN and work for it, like the rest of us -- which is the whole effing point, isn't it?!

Whoa. *breathes* Uh, I guess one good rant deserved another.

I'm better now.

"Sometimes I want to smother the bastard in his sleep."

She was in thank you for smoking? I don't remember her in it at all. Good movie though. :D

I'm kind of saddened by this post though. I thought it was supposed to be easy. I mean, not all roses and soft toilet paper, but not smothery either... Hmm.. I may have to rethink this whole "being human" thing.
